Directions to Solve

In each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and

• (A) If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question
• (B) If the data in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question
• (C) If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question
• (D) If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question and
• (E) If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

Question: What is the code for 'sky' in the code language ?

Statements:

1. In the code language, 'sky is clear' is written as 'de ra fa'.
2. In the same code language, 'make it clear' is written as 'de ga jo'.

I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
Either I or II is sufficient
Neither I nor II is sufficient
Both I and II are sufficient
Explanation:

The only word common to I and II is 'clear' and as such, only the code for 'clear' can be ascertained from the given information.

According to me, E should be the right answer.

I think only A is the answer because in the question, they asked about SKY; from 1st statement, we can see what is the code for the sky.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

E is the correct answer because here "sky" means "de".

But we can't conclude between sky and is. so D is the right answer.

Namrata Surve said:   6 years ago
E should be the correct possible answer because Both the statements follow reverse code pattern in which clear = de.

And both statements have is, it in which 'i' is commonly coded possibly as ra, da wherein i=a one more reverse coding possibility with that sky could be 'fa'.

I agree @Manisha.

Ananya Shekhar Vyas said:   7 years ago
E should be the correct answer as the pattern of the language is known from the two sentences. The code is opposite to the text and hence sky can denote to far.

Manisha said:   7 years ago
But if you consider only first statement then de is the code for the sky.

Then, why not only first statement is sufficient?

Mario Rose said:   7 years ago
I think I is correct because within that statement sky is used there, so the first code must refer to it within the translation. Sky was not used in II so you cannot arrive at a code reference from that statement.
